Over|State is the first photographic work from the young Greek photographer who presents a series which strangely and almost immediately mesmerizes you. The dark shots where white slams violently into deep black put ghostly characters on scene.
At the very heart of the photographs, these anonymous silhouettes float in a disturbing world with fuzzy outlines, as if they came from abstract reality. A strange impression of solitude emerges. Is this solitude the labyrinth of a mundane life in which everyone wanders? For Ilias Georgiadis uses photography to reach the depths of the human being where the obscure desires arise and overcome the trials of addiction and aloneness.
